Gustav Grob, executive secretary of the International Sustainable Energy Organisation (ISEO), yesterday in Dubai:
"Polluters should pay tariffs. It is my strong recommendation that costs of water and electricity be increased. Electricity paid by residents here could never actually cover the costs of running an electricity plant," said Grob.
"Water is running out because it is being given away for free. Taxes should be introduced. The polluters pay principle might work but you need laws, rules and to work with the government."
"Who pays for pollution here? Nobody," he said.
